  1. 2011-12 report card: Andrew Bynum

    Andy Kamenetzky

    As a college sophomore, to fulfill my foreign language requirement and nab an easy A, I took beginner-level German, a language I'd already studied for four years in high school. Predictably, I was ahead of the curriculum, which allowed me to skip ...

  2. 2011-2012 report card: Metta World Peace

    Andy Kamenetzky

    It was an interesting season for Metta World Peace. (Is there any other kind?) The campaign began with a visibly/admittedly overweight MWP tapped to pick up where his close friend Lamar Odom left off: The bench Kahuna. Having watched Metta spend two ...

  3. 2011-2012 report card: Matt Barnes

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The more things change for Matt Barnes, the more they first get better, then turn unfortunately worse before reaching an endpoint that feels, for all intents and purposes, the same. Andrew D. Bernstein/NBAE via Getty Images Once again, inj...

  4. 2011-2012 report card: Josh McRoberts

    Andy Kamenetzky

    If you're a reserve looking to become a fan favorite, a recent blueprint has been firmly established. You can be a relentless hustler who pursues every loose ball and relishes the dirty work, ala Ronny Turiaf and Josh Powell. You can be a highlight d...

  5. 2011-2012 Report Card: Darius Morris

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Word on the street was that if Darius Morris had remained at Michigan one more season, he might have been a lottery pick in the first round of the 2013 draft. Instead, he opted to make the jump to the NBA and found himself selected by his hometown La...

  6. Rapid reaction: Lakers 105, Wolves 102

    Andy Kamenetzky

    The most important thing was the W, not the ride to the destination. More often than not, it looked like a victory wasn't in the cards, despite Kevin Love sitting on the sidelines for Minnesota with back spasms. The Lakers turned up the intensity and...

  7. 2010-11 report card: Phil Jackson

    Andy Kamenetzky

    When Phil Jackson announced this past summer his return for "the last stand," a flurry of questions followed. How big a pay cut did he accept? Is Brian Shaw the heir apparent? Will Phil really walk away at season's end? How much does his presence inc...

  8. 2010-2011 Lakers Report Card: Pau Gasol

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Pau Gasol's disastrous postseason has already been dissected like a biology class frog, so we'll skip the rehash. The dirty little secret of this wipe out, however, is that his regular season actually signaled what laid ahead, albeit in more subtle f...

  9. 2010-2011 Lakers report card: Lamar Odom

    Andy Kamenetzky

    Lamar Odom's season was an exception to an old athletic rule that says as you get older your game declines. Not that Odom is "old" at 31, of course. Some even consider 31 part of an athlete's prime years. But it's one thing to perform at a high level...

  10. 2010-11 Lakers report cards: Matt Barnes

    Andy Kamenetzky

    We continue our series of Lakers' report cards. Next up, the reserve forwards of note (which means no report cards for the sparingly used Derrick Caracter, Devin Ebanks, Joe Smith and Luke Walton). Harry How/Getty Images Before getting inju...
